Dear colleagues!

Despite the downward shifting in economy, nanoindustry shows during several years positive dynamics in development. The sales volume of RUSNANO products has exceeded the pre-planned volume and has reached 341 billion RUR, the sales volume of the independent from RUSNANO producers has reached 928,7 billion RUR. The total amount of the Russian nanotechnology industry has reached 1 269 billion RUR.

Some of the nanoindustry companies have become already significant players on the Russian and other markets. We’ve reached dramatic results in implementation nanotechnology-based solutions in construction, energy, oil and gas production and exploration, electronics, medicine, biotechnology and other industries.

We are witnessing increasing demand on the Russian-born innovations and technologies from enterprises facing challenges of costs cut – with constantly growing at the same expenses on equipment, materials and spare parts from abroad. Many of the technologies and solutions developed by Russian companies, R&D centers and other market players have already shown themselves not less effective than that of produced abroad – with dramatic advantage in procurement price, maintenance costs. It is important that small and medium nanoindustry enterprises are actively involved now in corporations’ innovation development programs. They manage to win market share by means of their products and solutions advantages for customers. 

We are one of the major Russian investors in hi-tech ideas, companies and teams and we are awaiting lots of promising disruptive projects in the future. It is vital for us while entering the next investment phase.

The government today makes significant steps on the way of infrastructure development for hi-tech business development, stimulation of demand for innovative solutions and products developed in Russia, building-in the Russian manufacturers into production chains. All these steps make dramatic contribution to stimulation of Russian hi-tech products entering the global market. Russian nanotechnology products has reached significant share of the overall hi-tech export volume and now may be estimated as 195 billion RUR.

The 5TH Russian Nanoindustry Congress will be an effective platform for discussion new challenges and opportunities, cooperation formats and prospects between tech entrepreneurs.

I wish to all the Congress participants become inspired and gain courage for bringing to life all the brave and disruptive ideas.
